GEVAS was incorporated in Halle Westfalen Germany by Mr. Bernd Sander. Back in 1967, Mr. Sander founded the company CITO, a fast growing producer of plastic films and materials with flexoprinting and bag making. CITO later merged in the Nordenia Group, which is meanwhile acquired by the Mondi Group. During the start up of CITO in the early times a small group of technicians focused on machine support and equipment especially for the growing hygienic industry. This group formed the basis of GEVAS and the first machine delivered was a bathroom tissue bag filler.
